Since joining the Healthy Together Network, Mom Starts Here has greatly benefited from the streamlined process of receiving referrals, along with the ability to easily refer to other community organizations. It has expanded our reach and allowed us to serve more families in the tri-county area. The platform has made it so easy to obtain the information needed to best help an incoming client and integrate client profiles. Healthy Together has been a game changer for me personally in my ability to quickly meet the needs of new clients. We are so grateful to be a part of this larger network, and the families we serve are better for it.

The St. Peter’s Health Partners Social Work Service Line has been on the Healthy Together platform for almost a year now. As a result of the efficiency the platform offers, our staff can not only meet more patient’s needs, but also have additional face time with patients and their families. The ease of use, combined with bi-directional communication, allows my staff to feel assured at the end of the day that their patient’s needs are and will be met.

Healthy Together provides a platform to link the medical system to community based resources like SCAP. Patients are able to get referred directly to SCAP during their doctor’s appointment, linking them to needed resources that can address social determinants of health.

We are a collaborative, high-performing, regional network of organizations that provide social services (access to food, shelter, transportation, etc.) to the underserved communities spanning Albany, Rensselaer, Schenectady, Fulton, Montgomery, and Saratoga counties. A community convener, Alliance brings together health providers of all kinds – medical, social, and behavioral – to cultivate sustainable, community-wide solutions that better health.

We assist (our community members + partners), we advise (where necessary), we augment (when invited to do so), we assess (to offer feedback about our shared progress), and we take accountability for the health of our community.


The work we do is largely possible thanks to Healthy Together, Alliance’s free referral platform, used to connect thousands of community members in need to our growing network of organizations ready and willing to help. Healthy Together links health providers of all kinds (from regional hospitals to local food pantries and everyone in between), so that basic human needs – not just medical ones – are met timely and with kindness.




At the very foundation of our company is a shared belief that we exist only because we continue to foster real change for our community’s most vulnerable. Our hypothesis, which is part of a growing trend, is that by addressing social needs (access to healthy food, stable housing, job training, etc.) before they evolve into medical problems (routine – costly – trips to the emergency department for warmth during cold, winter months for the homeless population, etc.) will improve the overall health of our communities, while reducing medical costs for all.
